Suggestions would be great.  Paul, if this list exists somewhere else please let me know and delete this thread (and the Seed Source threads also). -nick

I have over 100 varieties of apples. I have sold scionwood-but not regularly.

I am in search of fruit tree scions for grafting in the spring of 2012. please contact me Gil, or anyone who wants to trade some or sell some. Thanks, Ray

I'm looking too. I live west of the cascades but east of seattle, anyone have varieties that are regular croppers and store well for my area?

Wow, that list is epic. I see they have acquired some of those khazak apples, though not for sale.

My favorite source would be neighbors - usually free and you end up with stuff that presumably does well locally.

I would guess Rare Fruit Growers would be a great source for unusual stuff... $36/year membership. I am not a member.

my idea was to visit a nursury in late winter with a pair of hand pruners and "help" prune their trees. coupled with a packet of antonovka seeds, you'll get 25 varieties of apple for about 3$

I could use any kind of apple, pear, cherry, fig,
and any apricot, plum, peach and nectarine that is fire blight resistant
What scionwood do you have and how much per 12 inch piece?

If you join NAFEX there are lots of folks that have scionwood for sale there. www.nafex.org $20/year subscription and that includes a great little magazine!
One of my favorites is also Burnt Ridge Nursery and Walden Heights Nursery. Both have good websites too.

My favorite source for scion wood is old abandoned homesteads, wild trees, and from any tree that is of old age and I get a chance to try the fruit. My best grafted varieties have come from wild trees, followed by old homesteads.
